If you’d like a chance to win $1,000, have some fun, and support a good cause at the same time, buy a $5 ticket from the Cedar Springs Rotary and let the chips fall where they may.
The Rotary Club will be hosting its first ever “Cow Plop” on Saturday, August 7, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. This free family event will be held in the vacant lot next to White Creek Lumber on White Creek Avenue.
The event will focus around the excitement of where the live cow will drop its plop with the drawing at 2 p.m. Carefully marked and numbered squares will be created on the vacant lot prior to the cow arriving. Lottery tickets can be purchased prior to the day’s event for just $5.00 each with no limit to the number of tickets that can be purchased. The grand prize is $1,000. (If less than 400 tickets are sold, the drawing will revert to a 50/50.)
Other live events for the day include an MC from a local radio station, a wood carver, basketball shooting contests, live petting zoo, ice cream, and grilled hot dogs by the Boy Scouts.
Lottery tickets must be purchased prior to August 7 and can be found at all three local banks (Independent Bank, Choice One Bank, and Chase Bank), White Creek Lumber, Gebhardt Insurance, or any other local Rotarian. The event is free and open to all.
All of the proceeds will go to Rotary which in turn funds local scholarships and opportunities for our community’s youth and others in need.
